This week primary 7 have ben continuing our work on simplifying fractions. In P.E we have been making plans for our games that we will practise with our p1 buddies. We also completed our advanced reading SNSA’s.
This week we started fractions we also completed our SNSA’s and we had a brilliant open afternoon all about listening and talking.
We have been learning about fractions in maths and probability
In literacy we are learning about writing stories
Last week primary 7 went to St Pauls for a health and wellbeing transition day we did a class on controlling our chimp sensory tasting with smoothies in home economics and ended our day with P E
well done p7
We did our first experiment this week, testing to see what kinds of materials float and sink. More importantly, we learned about predictions and making experiments fair.
We also finished our work on multiples and factors, all ready to begin a new topic next week.
We also had a lovely visit from Fr Ninian who spoke to us about the sacrament of confirmation and prayed with us.
Our big news this week is that from next week, Mrs Glancy will be our teacher. We look forward to showing her what we can do and learning even more from her.
We had a great Christmas break but have got right back into our learning this week! We all know about factors and multiples and can find common factors and common multiples of numbers.
We have been using digital technology a lot in our learning – our ePortfolios, our literacy lessons and consolidating our numeracy.
We have been doing Scottish Country Dancing but making it more fun by dancing to some of Mrs Simpson’s favourite tunes!
Our new topic this term is The Science Lab and we are looking forward to doing lots of experiments!
Well it’s been a very busy time in P7. We just recovered from our leading roles in the Christmas concert (which was a terrific success – Mrs Simpson was so proud of us!) and we were preparing for our Christmas party, MCing the showcase of clubs and enjoying the school mass and carol service. We managed to squeeze in some maths work on co-ordinates and some descriptive writing too! So now we’re off for a relaxing festive period.
We hope you all have a lovely Christmas and a wonderful new year. We’ll see you in 2020!
We’re keeping ourselves busy preparing for the Christmas show next week and finishing off some assessments for Mrs Simpson.
Our craft fair went well with our edible reindeer food, lanterns and candle holders for sale. We’ve finished off our newspaper reports and worked some more on solving word problems in numeracy.
We will hopefully see many of you at our last primary school Christmas concert on Wednesday!
We are just back from our day at St Paul’s Academy. It was amazing! We did Science and Technology and Business things. It was a great experience. We enjoyed making Scratch animations, mixing chemicals and creating digital graphics. Now we know how fireworks get their different colours. Lunch was fab – the muffins were delicious!
We’re already looking forward to our next transition day in January!
It’s been a busy time in P7! We’ve done assessments on dividing by 2 digits and now we’re working on dividing by 2 digits. It’s tricky but we’re persevering.
We’re also working on our newspaper reports. We’ve researched our chosen subject and now we’re getting ready to write it up.
We’ve also been working on our Pope Francis Faith Awards, learning about empathy in relationships, keeping control of our bodies in gymnastics and trying out different styles of artwork. On top of all that we’re deep into rehearsals for our Christmas show. Phew!!!
